About North Wales, PA

The borough of North Wales is a community located in Montgomery County, Pennsylvania, one of three historic communities that form the North Penn Valley region. Originally founded in the early 1700s by Welsh settlers, North Wales began to rapidly grow with the introduction of railroad lines into Philadelphia in the 1850s. The community of North Wales eventually outgrew its official boundaries, and today popularly includes many areas of nearby townships and unincorporated communities. In the present day North Wales remains a suburb of Philadelphia, but maintains its historic architecture and character through the North Wales Historic Preservation District.

Frequently Asked Questions about Criminal Defense in North Wales, PA

FAQ: Do I need an attorney if I want to plead guilty?

You should always speak to an experienced criminal defense attorney before making the decision to plead guilty. Even if you want to admit to your crime, a lawyer may be able to secure a more favorable sentence in exchange for your guilty plea. An attorney can also review your case and advise you as to potential legal defenses you may have, including challenging the admissibility of the state’s evidence or challenging the sufficiency of the evidence to prove one or more elements of your charged offense beyond a reasonable doubt.

FAQ: What happens after I am arrested on criminal charges?

After you are arrested and processed by law enforcement, you will be brought before a local trial judge or magistrate for a preliminary arraignment where the court will set bail, release you on your own recognizance, or continue to hold you in jail. Following the preliminary arraignment is the preliminary hearing, where the prosecutor will be required to present sufficient evidence to warrant continuing your prosecution. Finally, you will appear before the court for a formal arraignment, where your case is transferred to the appropriate level of court and you are provided with the formal list of charges against you and asked to enter pleas to each charge. At each stage, you are entitled to have legal representation.
